Pompeii & Herculaneum – 2020


Ink and acrylic on collage
42 x 30cm
This was sadly the final week of the Sky Arts Artist of the Week show. 
I will hugely miss this weekly portrait show. It’s been such a great creative boost and challenge during lockdown.
This week was a really great artist & sitter combination, with the brilliant Selena Mowat and the very lovely Mary Beard 
The Pompeii text, which I stumbled upon in an old book I’d been given, just seemed rather apt for Mary. I also threw in a bit of old sheet music and some dressmaking pattern.
Next week, without the show, I may decide to catch up on the two weeks I missed.

Original artwork and signed prints of this piece are available to purchase via my online shop.

And for anyone interested in exactly how I put this artwork together. Here’s a video of me discussing my process, my ways of working and then some very sped up video film of me completing this from start to finish.
